* MATH 226 can be substituted for MATH 225 with the permission of the Chair of Undergraduate Studies in MECH. This is applicable mainly to students who transferred into MECH.

** Students most likely took MECH 290 FW, but can take APSC 291 and APSC 292 to meet core requirements.

Technical Electives (See approved lists below)F/W300

Note: Must have total of 336 AUs Technical Electives over 3rd and 4th year.

* Capstone Design Course

All students must take a capstone design course in their program. This would normally be MECH 460 (66 units, Fall) for ME1 and ME2 students. ME3 students must take MECH 462 along with MECH 460 (total units 108, Fall and Winter).

However, all students may choose to take APSC 480 (108 units Fall/Winter) or APSC 400 (78 units, Fall/Winter) as substitutes for MECH 460. ME1 and ME2 students should note that any units above 66 for these courses count towards their technical elective units.

ME3 students who choose to take APSC 400 instead of MECH 460 and MECH 462 must make up the lost units (108 - 78 = 30 units) with another technical elective.

Students must be aware that APSC 480 has a prerequisite - APSC 381.

If students want to take APSC 400 or APSC 480 they must make sure they DROP MECH 460 and  MECH 462 and ADD their desired course.

+ This is the recommended minimum number of AUs, students typically take more.

1 APSC 221 - Engineering Economics, offered in Fall Term only for 2009/10 (This course replaces COMM 244.)

Complementary Studies
Refer to the Complementary Studies section of this calendar for details regarding the requirements for all Engineering programs. For the Mechanical Program, the Engineering Economics course is COMM 244, and the Communications courses are MECH 290, MECH 391 and MECH 392.
